One of Longford’s most highly regarded health and well-being professionals celebrates three very successful years in business, by renaming her salon this week.
Ultimate Well-being Unisex Beauty which is located at Little Water Street in Longford town is owned and managed by Brazilian native, Michelle Hadad and this week, she is changing the name of the business to the Body and Mind Clinic.
At the Body and Mind Clinic, Michelle specialises in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) therapy and counselling services and is one of the few health professionals in the midlands to use the NLP approach with her clients. She is currently refreshing her own skills as she engages in the study of Psychology and Anatomy, and holistic massage.
Her services can assist everyone, particularly those who may be depressed or suicidal; those battling alcohol, drug addictions or eating disorders as well as those who are grieving, being bullied or struggling with life’s daily demands.
“Throughout my career as a massage therapist and NLP practitioner, I have come to realise that practising both treatments simultaneously can be of significant benefit to the client,” she added.
“Throughout the massage process the person experiences a calm relaxing, supportive environment which enables them to relax and allow the mind to focus more clearly on issues of concern in that person’s life.
“This clarity of focus is an essential element in the NLP treatment as it enables me to assist the person in identifying their current thought process much more efficiently than if it were in a clinical room setting.”
NLP is a method of influencing brain behaviour through the use of language and other types of communication to enable a person to ‘recode’ the way the brain responds to stimuli, and manifest new and better behaviours.
“Through the course of treatment my clients will discover dozens of powerful new tools and techniques that can be used immediately to create rapid change that is both effective and lasting for themselves and others.”
She continued: “Many people find it difficult to express their feelings and problems fact to face, so I have developed a tool that works well with my clients,” the businesswoman continued.
“The room has been adapted to reassure and relax my clients - the environment is calm - and it facilitates communication.”
“The treatment works for phobias, trauma, alcohol and drug addiction, problem solving at work, people who may feel suicidal as well as for many other problems,” Michelle continued.
In recent weeks, Michelle’s clinic has also undergone refurbishment and her treatment rooms are warm, bright and comforting.
Sessions at the Body and Mind Clinic range from one to two hours and start at €35.
Michelle would like to take the opportunity to thank her loyal customers and sponsors for their continued support. Special thanks also to Deputy Robert Troy TD for his kindness and response on the article to the Brazilian legal blog.
Michelle works by appointment only and is open Monday to Saturday from 10-6:30pm.
